Your Seminary today...
Your gift to Saint Francis de Sales Seminary today is the best way to make an immediate and profound impact on today's priestly formation. Contributions are used to meet the most pressing needs for seminarian education.
Consistent annual giving is the financial lifeblood sustaining the Seminary's vital mission of forming priests to serve Catholics for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Now more than ever, your gift will support our growing number of seminarians, up 15% from just last year.
Your gift of any amount goes directly to support seminarian formation, which costs about $60,000 for one seminarian for one year.
